COVID FRONTLINE Initiative

Welcome to COVID FRONTLINE, an information hub and pandemic resource center on the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 first emerged in China in December 2019 and was declared a global pandemic in March 2020. The rapid increase of critically ill patients with pneumonia and the absence of definitive treatment quickly overwhelmed healthcare systems. With confirmed COVID-19 cases continuing to grow, scientists are pushing forward with efforts to develop vaccines and treatments to slow the pandemic and lessen the damage from this novel virus.

New data regarding COVID-19 are emerging daily. Clinicians require up-to-date resources on current treatment guidelines and clinical trial data on effective therapies and vaccines to improve clinical outcomes, minimize patient harm, and ensure consistency in care. The general population needs the latest information on the virus in order to limit its transmission and prevent future infections. COVID Frontline provides a Pandemic resource center, offering the latest information for healthcare providers.

Updates in the Treatment and Prevention of COVID-19​

Casirivimab and Imdevimab Approved in Japan for the Treatment of Mild-to-Moderate COVID-19

Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) has fully approved the combination of casirivimab and imdevimab to treat patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19. This marks the first time a monoclonal-antibody cocktail has received full approval to treat COVID-19. This combination therapy is currently authorized for emergency use in more than 20 countries, including the United States, European Union, India, Switzerland, and Canada. The monoclonal antibody cocktail was approved in Japan after results from a phase 3 trial showed a 70% reduction in the risk of hospitalization or death in high-risk non-hospitalized patients who received casirivimab and imdevimab. The MHLW also reviewed results from a phase 1 trial that analyzed the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of the combination therapy in Japanese subjects. Multiple analyses have shown that casirivimab and imdevimab retain potency against circulating variants of concern, including Delta (B.1.162.2, first seen in India), Gamma (P.1, first seen in Brazil), and Beta (B.1.351, first seen in South Africa).
